File Type 1Bash Shell Script
What is a SH file?
An SH file is a script programmed for bash, a type of Unix shell (Bourne-Again SHell). It contains instructions written in the Bash language and can be executed by typing text commands within the shell's command-line interface.
Bash is a command language and Unix shell that replaces the Bourne shell, which is how it got the name Bourne-again. It is widely used by many Linux distributions and OS X.
NOTE: SH files may also be used to store scripts for other shell programs such as Bourne Shell, C-Shell, and Korn Shell. Apple Terminal is a Bash shell.
